Carving out an infectious, innovative niche in the world of testosterone-driven alt-metal, CKYs aggressive rock riffage still packs plenty of punch after 10-plus years. The highly anticipated release of 2009s Carver City the bands first album in four yearsproved that some rock bands actually do get more badass with age. Experimental textures and synth trails complement their unbridled thrash appealand CKYs music is still the perfect soundtrack to any extreme sport or ill-advised stunt.
